Meet the finalists…
One person who nominated Thelma said, “Since 2010 my great aunt has took me in when I was in foster care.
“She also puts anyone before herself.
“In March 2012 I got diabetes and it hasn’t been an easy ride for me.
“I don’t know what I could have done without her.”
Someone who nominated Patricia said, “My mum Patricia is always there for me.
“She is a great mum – will do anything for me and her grandkids.
“She will always go the extra mile.
“Always there for us in the best way she can be.”
One person who nominated Helen said, “My mum is one of a kind.
“She has worked through every single one of the lockdowns in a school as they stayed open for key worker children.
“She continuously worked even though she is at risk herself.”
Despite going through a very difficult time in the third lockdown, Helen still went to school with a smile on her face – and was there to help out with homework when she got home.
Congratulations to all of our finalists!
